Skull Memento Mori Ring

A stunning skull wax seal ring with a wonderful Latin motto "Memento Mori", translated to "Remember your Mortality" or "Remember that you must die", a reminder to live life well. The phrase Memento Mori is a symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death and was first used in the late 1500's. I created the ring band to include vintage lines of prose from an old letter running across it, a perfect compliment to the seal. You may also select a plain ring band at checkout. Each ring is cast using the original historic seal dating to the late 1700's. Not your typical piece of jewelry, but one with a story, symbolism and meaning. Such a statement ring!

This ring is a reminder that life is short, live it well with no regrets, remember your mortality. Words to live by every day.

Details

►WAX SEAL - the skull wax seal is approximately 3/4" across
►RING SIZE - ring is made of solid Sterling Silver and is available in whole and half sizes 5 - 12. For Sizes 9 and up there is a slight upcharge as they require more silver to make!
►BAND WIDTH - the band is approximately 1/4" wide (4mm) and is very comfortable, not too wide, not too skinny.....just perfect!

Process

Each ring is hand cast using the original historic seal dating to the late 1700's, they are unique and one-of-a-kind in every regard so they may vary slightly from the pictures you see and may vary a tiny bit in dimension. Each piece has been given an antique patina and are hand rubbed and tumbled giving them an appealing vintage look that brings out all the detail. Each one is a work of art!

I don't wear jewelry, generally speaking, but when I saw this ring and read about it's symbolism, I knew I wanted it. I received it today, as promised and I couldn't be happier with the purchase.
Thank you so much Shannon!

This ring was a gift for my brother for Christmas and he really loved it! Took a while to ship as it was made to order - so remember that when ordering if for a gift.
